Romantic River Farm Elopement Inspiration

Overflowing with romantic vintage details and Bridal accessories, soft spring florals, and a pair of the sweetest pooches I’ve ever laid eyes on, this inspiration shoot, brilliantly coordinated by Voila Event Studio and photographed by Audra Wrisley, is making me want to elope with my sweetie ASAP. See the rest of the pretty in the gallery here!


From Audra WrisleyI’m so excited to share this elopement inspiration shoot photographed at Virginia’s enchanting River Farm. Inspired by the Mottahedeh ‘Tobacco Leaf’ plates, our shoot centers on soft summery colors with a bold twist of royal blue. River Farm’s brick trellis was the perfect backdrop for a southern elopement, infused with vintage elements like the gorgeous Gossamer gown and Trumpet & Horn engagement ring.

European Garden Bridal Inspiration

Pause everything, because you’re going to want to soak up every bit of this beauty. With Michael and Carina Photography behind the lens it’s garden Bridal like you’ve never seen before. I’m talking lush florals, beautiful paper goods and one stunning dress. So, get scrolling and soak it all up in the gallery!

From Michael and Carina Photography… This dreamy bridal session is inspired by European gardens. Simple, elegant and organic. It is almost as if the bride is wandering through a secret garden, smelling the flowers and feeling the earth under her feet. The soft color tones and lush floral arrangements add to the organic feel of the photos.

This bridal session has it all: beautiful paper goods, florals and a stunning dress – and yet it is simple. Nothing is meant to overshadow the feeling of getting lost in that overgrown garden, in that smell of the blossoms…

Traditional Hotel Monaco Wedding

I love when a couple finds a way to add special traditions and touches to their Big Day. This intimate ceremony has so many lovely details, from the bride in her mother’s stunning dress to the romantic blush pink flowers, it is impossible to pick a favorite. Get even more of this love-filled fete in the gallery from Elizabeth Fogarty!


From Elizabeth FogartyDaniel and Michelle’s wedding at the Hotel Monaco was simply perfect. Michelle wore her own mother’s dress, which looked fabulous with her sparkly Jimmy Choos. Daniel chose a Tiffany and Co. wedding band, which is awesome since the grooms deserve some love too! It was one of those beautiful and crisp fall days. After their first look, they signed the Ketubah surrounded by both their families. After the signing, they moved to the courtyard for their intimate ceremony. The silver chairs plus the pink and blush flowers made the perfect combination. Just like Michelle’s soft laced dress, the outside looked super romantic. The best part of the day was seeing how truly loved they are and what a great time all the guests had.
